What is a river of stones?

For the month of January 2011, writer Fiona Robyn (now known as Satya Robyn) asked people to join her in writing a short piece of writing each day for the whole month, and blogging it either on their usual blog or a new one (or in a notebook if they were shy).

She said: Don't worry about whether you're a 'writer' or not - this project will help you to connect with the world, and we could all do with a bit more of that. Start the year as you mean to go on.

It was so successful that she promised it would happen again in future months — and so it has. Meanwhile, some of us are continuing to write them any old time.
